StaticWind commented on Super Smash Bros. Club Nintendo Mewtwo Codes a...:

Awesome! For once, I actually got a Club Nintendo code not after everyone else on the planet! Like usual, my 3DS keeps pausing my download bit by bit. That's only the software update data. Gah. :(
Anyway, it's good to see everyone can finally play as him now.



StaticWind commented on Feature: The Final Xenoblade Chronicles X Pres...:

Yeah! The online functions that I hoped for ever since I heard of this game has been given! I'll most likely have finished my game backlog by then, so I absolutely can't wait to set aside two days or so just to have fun with the game. Those guilds are going to be tons of fun to be in! :D



StaticWind commented on New Fire Emblem on 3DS Takes Shape as Two Sepa...:

Personally, I'd like to experience both stories (it's hard enough to choose sides as it is). However, I don't think I'd be willing to spend around $80 for both (I'm a physical copy kind-of-person). If I ever ease up on buying downloads (as long as I can recover them), then perhaps it wouldn't be so bad.
I'll just be pretty honest and admit that I'd prefer they put it into one game, since I'm a consumer, and prefer whatever easy prices I can get. With that said, I'll just wait, see what they do with it in NA, and maybe I'll quit being so one-sided. :P



StaticWind commented on The New 3DS Fire Emblem Will Force You To Pick...:

I was kinda hoping that we could maybe stop both sides or something, but then again, that doesn't happen too much in reality, so that's neat, I guess. Besides, it's not like I wasn't going to replay this more than four times.



StaticWind commented on Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem Wii U Cross...:

It's a good thing they showed it to us now! I couldn't be happier. I was expecting that they'd either show it off at E3 or it'd be canceled.
Anyway, I'm confused as to what aspects from both series will be present, as it seems heavily similar to Persona, but I'll just remain patient. Maybe GameXplain will find something, haha.



StaticWind commented on Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 1st April, With ...:

Whoa. I've already read that it's starting on two users' birthdays. Neat. :)
It's about time there was a Direct that didn't start on a school day (or at 3 AM). Now I can finally bask in its full awesomeness! It's definitely like Nintendo to do this on April Fools Day. I can already see the live chat before the Direct airs.
"Guys! You're not gonna believe this! They're making another Mother game! Yessss!"



StaticWind commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U No Longer Set fo...:

I'm totally okay with this. This game has tons of potential, so I don't mind a delay. Besides, as I've learned plenty of times, Zelda games being delayed are common.
Well, with this game pushed back to 2016, that leaves more time for games like Xenoblade Chronicles X to take over all the time I have! :D



StaticWind commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Interviews Several Prom...:

This was cool! It'd be neat to be an indie developer someday. ^^
I knew there was going to be that one guy that knows his Mario Kart! There always is. :D Oh, and Runbow looks pretty neat! It sounds like it'd be a blast to play.



StaticWind commented on Modder Makes Chrom Playable in Super Smash Bro...:

Ohhh. I thought it was a PSA. Well, this is still pretty neat anyhow! I haven't gotten into Brawl customs for quite some time now (transporting files and stuff was always time-consuming). Perhaps I'll get into it again someday.



StaticWind commented on Nintendo Unleashes Commercials and Minigame Vi...:

I just love what Luigi goes through in those minigames. He has terrible times in Mario Party.
Anyway, I'll probably be picking this up as usual. The commercials were pretty alright. I hope this Mario Party is very good, though. Although Mario Party 9 was good, it didn't keep me coming back like the other Mario Parties.



StaticWind commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:

I seriously hope they look more into what they're doing — that is all. Initially hearing this, I thought it wouldn't hurt to try it out. Reading over their terms of service, I would never even want to try this. I'd rather stay with my current network, and I don't even like them that much. There are two things that were brought to my attention, and they bother me:

"In the event this agreement is terminated for any reason. . .you must immediately take down any Video and text related thereto."

Whoa. Even if we won't be receiving any revenue? All of that hard work would just be gone? You have a gameplay video that probably won't be monetized freely. What kind of reason is there for removal?

The list of specific games that may be used is a bit disappointing. There are many other games that are quite good, and it would be nice to upload gameplays on them and whatnot. Why not have them?

"[Do not] engage in any. . .objectionable conduct in relation to the Content or the Nintendo Creators Program"

That one kind of slightly irks me. I'd fear if it could ever become a silly case of "I'm offended! I don't like this!".
I'm just going to continue to observe people's take on this program. They have all the right to do this, but is this necessary? Think about all the other companies that allow things like this.



StaticWind commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

Wow, that's a lot of comments! I might as well add my two cents.
I've been a YT uploader for a couple of years now. I started monetization last year. Nintendo, of course, has all the right to do this, so I have no complaints there. Do I think it's a particularly good idea? When looking at what other companies do, I'm not feeling too hot about that.

If they want to take revenue from the views, then I understand. I wouldn't like it all that much, however. Monetization has been fairly helpful for me in terms of buying new Ninty games and then doing videos on those later (and 3DS games, I admit :P). Generally, just being a YouTuber and doing what I do best has always been something I've enjoyed doing. I've met some awesome people over the years and have had cool experiences through uploading Ninty walkthroughs and whatnot. From the countless time spent from editing videos to responding to comments and whatnot — it's all awesome. They can throw money out of the equation and I'd still do it.

The only reason I can see myself taking a temporary halt on videos is if I get a certain amount of Content ID claims. Even though it's Nintendo, I'm still trying to remain cautious of the fact that they could decide to do copyright strikes instead without notice.

Sadly, I'm still in a network for about another year, so I couldn't test this out if I wanted to. Right now, I feel as if they should strongly consider what everyone is generally saying right now, because as I've seen so far, this isn't all that harmful.



StaticWind commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X is so Sizeable That It ...:

Oh boy. I seriously need to magically clear my game backlog before the NA release of this. There is no way I won't get engrossed in this, so I need to play it at my comfortable pace without any other games to worry about. Heck, if it's at least 300 hours, then I might take longer. I tend to unconsciously take longer finishing RPGs.
Oh, and if the online mode is what I think it would be, then there's no way this won't claim the rest of my gaming time for a while. At the least, I'd better finish Earthbound fast.
